Why should the honourable CM think about the stock status?? Why can’t he think of stopping the bandh and blockade?? Why can’t he declare such idiosyncrasies as illegal?? Why can’t he call upon the union home minister and brief him about The UNC bullying tactics an put an immediate stop to such unlawful ransom techniques??
Time to answer a lot of such questions Sir.
